One to one ceramic workshops with Kate Schuricht in her Kent studio.
The workshops cover a variety of techniques including slipcasting, press moulding, hand building and decoration. Glazing sessions can also be arranged as a follow up or a stand alone session.
The one to one workshops are tailor made to each student's particular needs, so they are ideal for students wishing to deepen their knowledge and understanding of specific areas. Kate will plan the workshop around the student's needs and send a lesson plan in advance.
The one to one sessions make a great birthday, Christmas or wedding present for budding ceramic artists and potters. Morning or afternoon sessions are available. A full day session is also available, please see my other listings to book.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials and firing costs are included in the price, as well as a home cooked lunch and refreshments.
4 hours (flexible times to suit)

I first enrolled in a one to one course with Kate when I was doing A-levels, when she helped me bring my "newspaper in the hedgerow" fantasy to life through imprinted plants and old letter plates. More recently, since graduating from a BA course in design and looking to move onto the next stage, she has mentored me towards launching my ceramics career with a series of half day sessions. We have worked on slip casting technique, surface decoration (onto both greenware and bisque) such as sgraffito/inlaying, glazing/glaze testing and image transfer application.
Having known Kate for many years I can attest to her wisdom and patience as a teacher, as well as her lovely nature and general enthusiasm. She is generous with her knowledge and experience, and keen to help you realise your ceramic ambitions. I would recommend her workshops to both beginners and intermediate potters looking to refine technique or expand their knowledge.
Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:Thank you, Henry. It is a pleasure working with you and seeing your skills grow and refine as you respond to new techniques and suggestions. Your creativity and graphic ability are so strong and your originality will take you far in the ceramic art world.
I really enjoyed the 1 to 1 session with Kate and was thrilled by what I created with Kate's help. Kate took time to understand what I wanted to get out of it and helpfully suggested a number of different options, which was great as I don't have much experience to draw on.
Kate helped me to bring my ideas to life and made suggestions to try things that I wouldn't normally have attempted - such as drawing on one piece which turned out wonderfully.
Kate is great to learn from and a pleasure to spend time with - relaxed productivity! I'd love to do it again and would highly recommend a one to one course to anyone who wants to learn and explore their creativity.
Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:Hi Nicky. Thanks for taking the time to review your two days with me. It was great fun and really productive, with some beautiful pieces coming out of the kiln. Congratulations! I was very impressed with what you made and I hope you don't mind me using the photos of your lovely work to show other students.
